“This is one lively, crowd-pleasing band.” — Music Connection
What is Skerryvore? They’re like no one else. Epic of melody, intimate of feeling and plugged into the roots of Scotland but blasting out to the world.
Three-time winners of Scotland’s ‘Live Act of the Year’ award, Skerryvore have evolved from their humble beginnings to become one of the country’s leading forces in a thriving live music scene. They are at the forefront of a movement that has reinvented and reignited a traditional Scottish scene for a modern, multicultural audience. The band now brings their high-energy performances to audiences across the globe. They’ve grown from their early days in Scottish West Coast halls and bars, to festival crowds in the USA, Canada, Australia and throughout the UK and Europe. Skerryvore’s wide range of influences and talent produce a musically expansive, immersive yet intimate set that excites and captivates audiences.
Skerryvore boasts an intoxicating mix of bagpipes, fiddles, accordions, and whistles, alongside guitar and vocals, underpinned by driving bass, drums and keys. Skerryvore represents the best in contemporary Scottish traditional music. Their seven studio albums demonstrate the wide range of influences the individual musicians bring to the mix – a unique fusion of folk, trad, pop and rock.
Three singles from the latest album, 2023’s Tempus, all featured on the BBC Radio 2 new music playlist. The album went to number 1 in both the Official Scottish Album and UK Folk Albums charts and entered the top 40 in the Official UK Charts. Skerryvore took their Tempus Tour to audiences across the UK, Europe and USA, with their unique fusion appealing to a wider mix of age groups and tastes.
